A 71-year-old woman with a history of surgically treated bronchial atypical carcinoid underwent 68Ga DOTATATE PET/CT for restaging. Somatostatin receptor PET/CT revealed a focal area of mild radiopharmaceutical uptake corresponding to a thickening of the right choroid. No other areas of abnormal tracer uptake were detected in the rest of the body. Based on these PET/CT findings, the patient underwent examination of fundus oculi, MRI, and fluoroangiography, which confirmed the presence of a choroidal lesion interpreted as solitary choroidal metastasis of neuroendocrine tumor. Subsequently, the patient was referred for brachytherapy with radical intent.
